Have you ever felt so overwhelmed that you have no idea where to start? So, you just sit there in a bubble, ignoring everything around you until it all magically disappears. Ok, so it doesn't magically disappears, but the bubble does give one a false sense of being under control!
My present state reminds me of a story I read in a book called Bird by Bird, written by Anne Lamott. Her older brother had a book report on birds for which he had 3 months to complete, but decided to work on it the night before it was due. Sitting at the kitchen table surrounded by books, papers etc ... and paralyzed by the immense work ahead with so little time, his father sat down next to him and said "Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird". (p. 19)
Great piece of advice for times when one feels overwhelmed. So today I am dealing with one bird, and that is the give away courtesy of Edyta Sitar posted on Taking care of business.
And the winner is ..... drum roll please ......
So Pat from Bits and Pieces blog please get in touch with me so that we can make arrangements for your lovely prize.
Thank you everyone for stopping by my little corner in cyberspace! Onward to the next bird...! Cheers!

I definitely know the feeling. Hang in there.
That is what I did, got what was most important done first and then the others went out, now just two left, so i can finally relax and next week it is time for me. Time to work on all those projects I have been wanting to make and the ones I need to finish.
Sometimes that's all you can do...one step at a time, moving forward even if it is at a snail's pace ;) :)
Congratulationsn to Pat on winning the giveaway :) :)
Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather ;)
I totally can relate too. Just admist all the chaos, don't forget to breath and just take things one step at a time. Trying to do two things at once is just an illustion. Hugs my friend and also Congrats to Pat! Jane
I know that feeling too. I think I'm in the middle of it now. Why didn't I start my little birds a few months ago -- it's not like Christmas comes around as a surprise every year -- we know it's coming. Why do we always wait until the last minute to write those reports???? Good Luck with your birds!!!
